EU Commission proposes COVID-19 postponement of tax rule changes
- 11 May 2020
Due to the difficulties that businesses and Member States are facing with the COVID-19 crisis, the European Commission proposes to postpone the entry into force of the VAT e-commerce package by 6 months, and the deadlines for filing and exchanging information under the Directive on Administrative Cooperation (DAC6) by 3 months. The European Parliament and the Council will have to ratify these proposals, and the Commission has asked both to adopt these proposals as soon as possible in order to provide legal certainty.
Proposed changes to taxation of digital services
- 02 June 2020
A lawmaker recently filed House Bill No. 6765 (or the 'Digital Economy Taxation Act of the Philippines'), which proposes changes to the way the digital economy is currently being taxed in the Philippines. The bill is also a response to the increased urgency in finding new sources of revenue to fund the country's efforts to recover from the adverse impacts of COVID-19. As part of the proposed changes, persons liable to VAT shall include those who sell or exchange goods or properties that are digital or electronic in nature, and render services including those rendered electronically. Income from such transactions would be subject to 12% VAT, and the 'network orchestrator system' or 'electronic commerce platform' (see below for definitions) would deduct and withhold the 12% VAT from the seller. The VAT withheld would be remitted within 10 days following the end of the month in which the withholding was made.

We have published a special report summarising the emergency measures announced by a number of these territories and will add others when available. Measures being implemented include delayed VAT remittances to give businesses a cash flow boost, or cuts in VAT/ GST rates to help the worst affected sectors, such as consumer, tourism/hospitality, or in respect of medical supplies.
